Porter Pals Preschool Program

 Our Mission

 Our mission is to provide a high-quality, inclusive preschool education by focusing on the whole child. This means that we address the social-emotional, cognitive, and physical aspects of child development.  We believe that young children learn best through guided play and exploration in an environment that has been carefully designed to promote learning.  We also believe that children learn a great deal from each other, and that adults can do much to support this learning process.  Therefore, children with and without identified Special Needs are brought together in order to help them to learn and grow.  We believe that parents and guardians are the most important teachers in a child’s life; therefore we view parents as our partners in the education of their children.
